Reba did not have the whistling ending. Boogie On featured a Twist-esque jam and contained an Oye Come Va tease from Page. Both Trey and Page teased AC/DC Bag during YEM. Undermind through Zero featured Bill Kreutzmann on drums.  Before the encore, Trey explained that Bittersweet Motel was being played at the request of his daughter, Bella.  After Bittersweet Motel, Fish remarked that he felt lonely again and needed the second drummer back.

Throughout the first set the band was using charades to communicate what song was coming next, prompting Trey to remark after Jibboo, “We do everything by hand signals now. There’s no more talking.”  After PYITE, Trey again referenced the hand signals, joking “That could be one of two songs, so we’ll see if he starts the right one.” During Antelope, Trey changed the lyrics to “Been you to have any slush?”  Disease contained an L.A. Woman tease from Trey, who also briefly teased Taste just before beginning Free, and was unfinished. Esther was played for the first time since September 30, 2000 (89 shows).

Stash contained DEG teases from Trey. During Ya Mar, Trey thanked the audience, saluted a Colorado swimmer who won two gold medals at the Olympics, and announced that a special guest would come out later in the set. The last three songs of the first set were all Phish debuts with Ninety-Nine Years featuring Tim O’Brien on mandolin and lead vocals and Hold To A Dream and Doin' My Tume on bouzouki and lead vocals. This show also marked the Phish debut of Gypsy Queen. During the Mockingbird narration, Trey told of a giant iguana that would take the crowd to Mars to view the life there.

Note the “This is Red Rocks, This is the Edge” quote from Trey during the break in Rift. The quote was a reference both to U2’s Live: Under a Blood Red Sky album and Trey’s similar remarks on the Junta-released version of Icculus. Suzy included a Simple tease. The phrase “21 year old Phish Fan Marcus Esquandolas” was substituted for “Marco Esquandolas” during Antelope in reference to a fan’s quote in a newspaper article on the disturbance in Morrison the day before. Tweezer included a Norwegian Wood jam. Harry Hood featured the debut of the “Hood” response chant, initiated by Phish.netters and advertised on flyers handed out at the Red Rocks shows. Among other ideas, the flyers encouraged fans to shout: “Hood” after the band sings “Harry.” It began to rain in the second set; the band responded with Purple Rain, and Chris Kuroda showed the stage in purple lights. The performance of Simple from this gig appears on the Carved in Stone CD benefiting The Rocks Fund, dedicated to the rehabilitation and preservation of Red Rocks Amphitheatre.

As urged in flyers handed out by Phish.netters, many fans sat down during the silent part of Divided Sky. Down with Disease was unfinished. Somewhere Over the Rainbow was performed solo by Page on the theremin. Waste through Strange Design were performed with Page on a smaller piano, Trey on acoustic guitar, Mike on acoustic bass, and Fish on a smaller drum set. This show marked the first performance of Talk and featured an atypical It’s Ice.

Trey sang the verses of Fee through a megaphone. Reba did not have the whistling ending. The Theme from Star Trek made its Phish debut at this show and was performed by Page solo on the theremin.

This show marked the first Phish performance of A Day in the Life. YEM segued into a HYHU vocal jam. Page teased Fanfare for the Common Man several times before Lonesome Cowboy Bill. Trey sang the verses of Fee through a megaphone.

This show marked the breakout of Frankenstein, which hadn’t been played since July 26, 1991 (332 shows). Suzy subsequently included a Frankenstein tease. Fluffhead was played after a group of fans had been requesting it since the beginning of the show.

Bowie included a Leprechaun tease by Trey. During Lizards, Trey talked about the rocks that looked like a giant lizard and referenced the last time they played at Red Rocks (August 20, 1993). Lizards also contained a Fanfare for the Common Man tease from Page. Cavern included Purple Haze and Voodoo Child teases from Trey. Tweezer contained What a Man (Linda Lydell original that was remade by Salt-n-Pepa in 1993) quotes from Trey. Possum contained a Random Note signal.

The band began the show with an appropriate opener, as the storm that had lingered in the Morrison sky cleared just before the show began. The Harpua story told the history of Red Rocks and the fate of a giant iguana, who was referred to throughout the show. Harpua also included a Rock and Roll Part Two tease and a tease of Eye of the Tiger by Page during Trey's narration about Poster looking directly into the eyes of the iguana. Trey teased Nellie Kane in Maze. Ginseng was acoustic, was dedicated to Brad Sands, and was preceded by a "Charge!" tease from Page.
